We’ll Help You Succeed

At CompTIA Tech Career Academy, our goal is to help you land—and succeed in—an IT job. We train students with little-to-no information technology experience and give you the technical and soft skills to launch your career. Although we cannot guarantee placement to our graduates, we will help you connect to the right employers when your training is done. Online learning is available in all classes. Our IT-Ready Technical Support program is accepting students now.
